Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will avoid paying a second fine this preseason.
Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com reports Suh will not be fined for his open-handed swat at Patriots guard Logan Mankins that did not connect.
Mankins had a fistful of Lions defensive end Lawrence Jackson’s facemask before Suh got into it. A scrum formed after that, but the NFL must have decided that it was a case of “boys will be boys.”
In this case, we appreciate the reticence to fine Suh. It didn’t seem warranted.
